Global AEC Firm Selects Global Enterprise Solution
Project managers are the lifeblood of global AEC (architecture, engineering, and construction) and consulting firm Burns & McDonnell, www.burnsmcd.com, Kansas City, Mo., is providing them with the right tools.
Implementation of an enterprise cost management system is expected to make their jobs easier—enabling them to be more efficient and ultimately helping the entire organization both internally and externally by driving greater customer service.
Enterprise project controls software provider EcoSys, www.ecosys.net, Broomfield, Colo., has announced that to achieve this goal, Burns & McDonnell, has selected the vendor’s EcoSys EPC (enterprise planning and controls) solution to serve as its enterprise cost management system.
EcoSys EPC will be instrumental in supporting Burns & McDonnell’s project delivery through its integrated and scalable Web-based software, with applications for budgeting and planning, cost forecasting, and project performance management allowing Burns & McDonnell to analyze project and program costs faster—and improve predictability.
It also provides the flexibility to tailor workflows and business rules to meet the varied needs of Burns & McDonnell’s 11 business divisions and more than 40 offices throughout the world. A cloud-hosted application, EcoSys EPC is predicted to drive efficiency by enabling Burns & McDonnell’s project managers to access project financials remotely and work from the field via mobile devices.
